New Anti-Spam Updates & Forum Access

Postby AUbicycles » Sat Nov 17, 2012 10:50 pm

Dear fellow forum members,
The forum spam has started to become a problem and some updates have been made to better block these spammers which cost hours and hours of time (for me, 3 hours yesterday, 5 today and the other forum mods are reporting spending a lot of time). Forum members often don't see the automated spam though the current spam methods are creating a bit of an overload.

Some security changes have been made which I hope do not affected the daily operation of this forum.

Unfortunately there tend to be "false positive" which is one of the side-effects, genuine visitors and members may accidently be pinpointed as a spammer. More often than not because they have a dynamic IP address which may have previously been used by a spammer or person with infected computer used to spam.

If you have problems:
Please email [email protected] and best is to include your username (if applicable) and IP address (find it here).

Please excuse the short downtime - it was part of the update and was a syntax error which I have now spotted..
